“the earthiness of Edith Piaf with the sassiness of Eartha Kitt”   Jazz Perspectives
Railtown Cultural Eclective presents The Blue Tango Tour — a collaboration between the celebrated Argentine tango singer María Volonté and California harmonica player Kevin Carrel Footer.
This globe-trotting duo celebrates the deep spiritual bond that joins tango and the blues, two musical genres born in desire and marginality, many times censored yet always resurgent and speaking directly to our hungry souls. 
Dubbed “Tango’s shimmering star!” (Global Rhythm), Volonté conquered the world of tango with numerous award-winning CDs. Her current projects explore the fusion of Argentine music with other Latin American rhythms, jazz and the blues.

A Latin Grammy nominee, Gardel Prize Winner (Argentina’s Grammy) and member of the Tango Hall of Fame, Volonté has emerged as one of the most admired and passionate voices in Argentine music. A singer who combines the “earthiness of Edith Piaf with the sassiness of Eartha Kitt” (Jazz Perspectives), Volonté is also a restless musical innovator who “plays impressive acoustic guitar and is willing to experiment” (The Guardian).

The concert is being held at the Fraser River Interpretive Centre at 33428 Harbour Avenue and starts at 3:30pm with doors at 3pm. Tickets are available on line at , Murdoch’s Bookshoppe or by calling Part of the Tribe productions at 778-322-1596.  For more information email or visit  or .
